Dual-Purpose Hydraulic and Metalcutting Fluid

Gates Engineered Lubricants, member of the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA), has announced the launch of its new Aladdin Duo dual purpose fluid. "The product eliminates the need for multiple oils in a metalcutting machine, reducing cost and increasing efficiency," said a company spokesperson.

According to Gates, a common challenge in metalcutting machines occurs when hydraulic fluid enters the cutting fluid reservoir, diluting the metalworking chemistry and reducing the efficiency of each cutting tool.

Jerry Gates, Owner of Gates EL, speaks to the costly impact of this occurrence. "A typical Hydromat consumes $50K - $150K per year in cutting tools. We have seen the use of Aladdin Duo save manufactures on average 26%."

"Aladdin Duo's metalworking test results have proven performance, surpassing traditional chlorinated, fatty, active sulfur-containing products," said the spokesperson. "Aladdin Duo is suitable for multi-metal shops, with proven performance on brass, carbon steel, stainless steel and exotics such as titanium and Monel. Similarly, separate hydraulic test results indicate Aladdin Duo can meet all hydraulic specifications to pass OEM approvals."

One industry professional, Chad Derbyshire, VP at Revolution Machine Works in Valley View, OH, stated, "Aladdin Duo helps us as a machine tool rebuilder by extending the life of the rebuilds that we do on machinery. It keeps the hydraulic system clean and lasts longer."

Gates Engineered Lubricants has more than 40 years of experience in developing industrial lubrications and fluids. Gates offers clients the opportunity to participate in the development of solutions. Gates manufactures products in Texas and serves customers globally.

"We are constantly expanding our blending and raw material storage capabilities," added Gates. "This allows us to be highly responsive to customer needs, ensuring their needs are met from product development to delivery."
